Baby news from Jordin Sparks and Dana Isaiah! The couple is expecting the first child. As is that wasn’t enough of a good news, they reveal they have already tied the knot, in secret, earlier this year.

Congrats are in order for American Idol alum Jordin Sparks. The 27-year-old singer is pregnant with her first baby. In an interview for the upcoming issue of People, Sparks says she is “extremely grateful because life is nuts. This is the best part so far because I have [Dana] and I have this little one and I have a new family. I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”

Sparks and her aspiring model beau, Dana Isaiah, have also unveiled that they have tied the know very privately, in July of this year. “He’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this”, she gushed.

The singer says she knew from the start she was going to marry Isaiah. “A couple days after we had actually met, I was like in my head ‘That’s going to be my husband! That’s my husband right there”.

And even if their parents weren’t keen on them dating, more for the fact that Isaiah’s parents did not want him to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in modeling, the two bonded quickly and became a solid item.

Just a month after their wedding, the newlyweds received the great news that they were going to be parents. They both say it is crazy, as they have to adjust to so many changes in such a short period of time. Nevertheless, they embrace all that is coming. “It’s such a great thing. We did this together!” Jordin says.

Jordin Sparks won the American Idol competition in 2007, at the age of 17. Since then, she has been present in the music industry constantly, except for a short hiatus in 2010.

Prior to dating and marrying Dana Isaiah, Jordin Sparks had a high-profile three-year-long relationship with Jason Derulo. The two broke-up in 2014. She also dated Sage the Gemini from May 2015 to February 2016.
